I think you're better off getting one of the dedicated macro lenses, such as the 60mm or 105 micro. The 60mm can be had used for around $300 and is maybe a touch sharper. The 105m gives you more working distance, and is about $400 used.

more in line with my budget would be one lense that would favor the close up end and do a good job at further distances. like the 18-200 maybe.any opinions?

If you're referring to Nikon's 18-200, its more expensive than either lens I mentioned. I tend to avoid the 3rd party superzooms as they are notably distorted throughout the zoom range.
